In light of climate change, many consumers are seeking eco-friendly products and as a result, brands are reevaluating their production model. One brand in the beverage industry leading the way is English Tea Shop, a specialty tea company that recently secured a £2.5 million financial package from HSBC UK to carry out its ambitious, eco-friendly growth plan.
English Tea Shop will be using part of the funding to increase its efforts to work with local communities to sustainably source the premium, organic ingredients. According to Suranga Herath, CEO of English Tea Shop, "Our journey to date is testament to the power of achieving growth by focusing on sustainable initiatives that simultaneously improve business performance. It’s fantastic to see this being recognized by HSBC UK."
